Stallholder Booking Conditions

Let’s make your market day a fab one.

Have yourself a smooth-sailing market day and be freed-up to focus all your sass into having a great time. It can be a real fizzer to turn up and realise you’ve presumed something that isn’t so. Once you are across these Booking Conditions and you have noted the Fine Print (below), head to Stallholder Info to choose your venue, dates and stalls.

Booking Conditions

The focus of this market is adult preloved and vintage wearables (no children’s wear).

All stalls are indoors – marquees, gazebos etc are not required.

Your stall choice from the floorplan cannot be changed once selected.

Stall measurements are single, 1.5m wide x 1m deep. Only bring what will fit in your stall.

Not permitted for displaying: laundry items like plastic, wood, wicker or metal airers, clothes baskets, ironing boards, picnic rugs, blankets or tarps.

Ensure your display rack is sturdy and supports your items.

Late arrivals (within 15 minutes of market opening) are not permitted to set up due to WHS risks, and will forfeit their stall.

Mathers Hall, Bathurst St markets – arrive before 8.45am for 9am start, and trade (with no packing up) until 1pm.

Mathers Hall markets are rack-only market. No tables. A chair is supplied. Stall measurements are single, 1.5m wide x 1m deep. Only bring standard racks (no circular or multi-railed) – either 2x 80cm long racks or 1x up to 130cm long rack.

 St James Hall, New Town markets – arrive before 11.45am for noon start, and trade (with no packing up) until 3pm.

For St James Hall markets bring all your own display furnishing – only a chair is supplied. Stall measurements are single 2m wide x 1.5m deep or double 4m wide x 1.5m deep.

Book only if your stall is covered to trade entire market hours. Trade in cash or use your own POS device.

You can sell quality adult wearables – vintage, retro, designer, unique and preloved clothing, and accessories like shoes, bags, jewellery, hats, and scarves. A shopper’s favoured stalls are 80:20 clothing:accessories.

No more than 20% of your collection can be new with tags – meaning items you purchased that are no longer fit for purpose. On-selling of new clothes is not permitted.

The only new items that can be sold are your own label/quality designed handmade jewellery or accessories.

Due to COVID19, only 1 person selling kit at your stall is permitted (unless otherwise stated) – this is you, the booker, only.

If you book a stall for someone else, their name, mobile, email, and their responses to questions asked in TryBooking are required.

Be mindful of your fellow stallholders and their space.

Notify management asap of any out of the ordinary happenings so you can keep selling.

Stall transfer to another is not permitted without prior agreement with us.

Leave your stall as you find it. Remove all your large and small waste items including coffee cups etc.

Large waste items left at your stall after you leave will be placed in a cab to your address, with the cab fare settled by you at your end.

At management’s discretion a booking may be rejected if circumstances require it. In that case, a refund will be issued.

Notify us at least 48 hours before market day if you cannot come so waitlisters can have your spot. It takes time to prep for a stall, so notification the day before or the morning of market day means your stall sits empty and someone else misses out. The waitlist closes at least 24 hours before a market.

Refunds are not offered. Transfers to another market date are not guaranteed.

Look out for and read your Market Day Stallholder Update. This arrives in your inbox approx. 7 days before market day.

Know your stuff before you finalise your booking. See Stallholder Info, Preloved Selling Guide, and FAQs even if you don’t think you have a question!

The Fine Print

Agreement. By paying the stall hire fee, you agree to this market’s Booking Conditions and the Fine Print.

First and foremost. You agree to set up for the markets as follows:
Mathers Hall, Bathurst St between 8 and 8.45am to be ready to trade at 9am; St James, New Town between 11.15 and 11.45am to be ready to trade at noon; and you agree to respect latecomer shoppers by not packing down (in any way) before the publicly advertised market close time.

Choose carefully. Note the market focus, location, venue, format, day, date and time before you book. Refunds are not issued for a change of mind. If any of these are not for you, please reconsider your booking.

Your stall is yours, so no transfers to anyone else without prior consent by contacting management at least 24 hours before market day.

Know this market’s focus. The focus of this market is adult preloved and vintage wearables (no children’s wear). Refunds are not issued for erroneous bookings. 

Your stall choice is your own based on availability on the venue floorplan so book early to get the spot you want! You cannot change this once paid.

Note on stall choice. Management retains the right to rearrange, if necessary, stall placements for smooth running on the day.

Newsletter. When you book you are automatically subscribed to our newsletters. You can opt out anytime.

Stall fee covers the hire of your stall/s at this market and the opportunity to display your collection on this occasion.

Your takings, float, change, and devices for taking payments are your responsibility.

Double bookings, where offered, cannot be split across two separate market dates or be split across two different areas of one venue – it is one booking.

Payment secures your booking. It is not a booking until paid for.

Rejected bookings may occur at management’s discretion on rare occasions if circumstances warrant it. In this case, a refund is issued.

Only 1 stallholder. If your name is on the booking, you are the primary stallholder for insurance purposes.

COVID19. A maximum of 1 stallholder is permitted per stall (unless otherwise stated) due to the number of people allowed in the hall at any one time. 

Market conditions apply to you and any person listed to sell on your stall.

Visitors. Any visitors to your stall are required to pay any applicable entry fees. This does not include those helping you to bump in and out, but due to COVID19 guidelines, they must leave during market trading hours.

Bump in and out helpers. Market conditions apply to all people associated with your stall.

Trade for the full market hours is expected on market day. Late starts or early finishes are not accepted as fair to fellow stallholders or shoppers. 

Refunds are not offered under any circumstances, so triple-check the day, date, time, the venue and the market’s focus (what can and can’t be sold), before you book. Once booked, lock the date in your diary and aim to get along to enjoy your stall! 

Transfers are not guaranteed. Under some circumstances, a booking transfer may be offered at management’s discretion but never for late arrivals, change of mind, or no-shows.  We always have waitlists so:

– Where a transfer is offered, your new market date needs settling within 3 months of offer or it’ll expire without notice.

– Your reconfirmation will be sought no later than 14 days prior to market day.

– Absence of reconfirmation means the spot is reallocated without notice and your offer is forfeit.

Waitlist. If you are on the waitlist we’ll be in touch if a spot opens up. The waitlist closes about 24 hours before market day.

– An offer will be made to all wait-listers.

– The offer is open for 12-24 hours depending on how close market day is.

– It’s first in best dressed (excuse the pun!).

– First acceptance receives the spot.
